Many of these priests from Philadelphia also "partied" with many from Camden Diocese, NJ.

Is the Philadelphia and new jersey diocese going to send buses to Washington ,DC to rally against government controlled healthcare on march 27th, 2012 or they going to be hypocrites and be neutral like they did during the Notre Dame scandal when many pro-lifers were arrested...

Rape of innocent children is not Catholic. Having more compassion for these criminals then the victims is not Catholic. Selling Catholic churches, schools, relics and statues is stealing and not Catholic.

Not standing up for God and the Catholic Church ( supporting abortions, contrac eptives )is not Catholic.

While I don't agree with some of what you say, you do get to the root of the matter: Who decides what is --- and isn't --- Catholic?

I feel the problem with child abuse in the Catholic church will only be truly addressed, when its followers quit defending these priest, to turn your back on the victoms and try to justify this abuse by saying ( It happens everywhere, its not just a Catholic church problem )
